Hence, a good leader should often make conscious efforts to attain these leadership precepts. However, research has shown that these qualities are very often lacking among the leaders of the various public institutions, agencies and organizations in Nigeria.

To achieve this, the paper analyzes extant literature on the concept of leadership, examine styles of leadership, and establish how leadership style impacts work efficiency, productivity and performance. The researchers rely on in depth content analysis to achieve the set objectives.Keywords: Leadership Styles, Democratic, Autocratic, Organizational Performance
